Clashes erupted between Pakistan and Afghanistan forces on the Durand Line at the Thorkham Gate on Monday.

According to reports, the battle between the two armies started following the closure of Thorkham gate after Pakistan denied allowing the Afghan patients to cross the gate.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people including patients have been stranded and the shops are closed.

“The fighting started in between two check posts on the top area. One of them belongs to Pakistan and another belongs to our Ministry of Defense,” said Karimullah Agha, an Afghan intelligence official at the gate.

The closure of the gate caused problems for many people needing medical care abroad and their accompanying relatives. They called on the two sides to reach an agreement over reopening the gate.

The Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment said that the closure of the gate affects the country.

“This issue damages both countries because we are transporting goods. We have trade with Pakistan,” said Khanjan Alokozai, a member of the ACCI.

The truck drivers meanwhile said that they would suffer millions of Afs worth of damage if the gate is not reopened.

Recently there have been many clashes reported alongside the Durand Line between the forces of both countries.
